Your readers couldn't have missed the two maps on the front page of your November 24 issue. I hope they don't take it as a joke. These redrawn maps of our region were produced by the think tanks of superpower America. Do not think that this nightmare will go away easily while our leaders do nothing to dispel it while they go on junkets around the world. Our present leadership is too weak to face the dangers ahead. America, India, Afghanistan are no friends of Pakistan. On behalf of every child, youth and elderly citizen of Pakistan, I beseech our leaders to please bring back to Pakistan the 'few' dollars they have 'borrowed' from this country so that we can stick out a tongue at the World Bank and IMF. -I. KHAN, via e-mail, November 28.
